Default Cole Porter Wifes Rose

Saw a great movie about Cole Porter the composer and he had a rose bred
for his wife (for putting up with all his crap). Kevin Kline was in it. I
would like to find this rose. Is it still around any perform well?

I, too, was curious about the Linda Porter rose after seeing the film.
Spent an evening wandering the internet looking for info and humming
the "delovely" tunes of Cole Porter. Remember reading that Ashley
Judd, who played the role of Linda, was also trying to locate it for
her own rose garden. As I recall (and it's been a while), it was
really an obscure rose & better known by another name. I gave up the
chase because the only references I found were for specimens in Spain
or Italy. Try a Google Search - maybe something new has shown up.

One web site I have seen says it is also called the "Miguel Aldrufeu"
rose, but I cannot confirm that elsewhere.

The Mrs. Cole Porter rose was released in 1957 by Bobbink & Atkins
Nursery in Rutherford, NJ, according to Helpmefind.com. Could not find
anything in google about this nursery except history comments.
Apparently out of business, but who knows. Read somewhere a couple
years ago about this rose and it was noted that it was no longer
available anywhere. Try contacting the local rose society in Rutherford,
they may have someone who knows more about it for it's historical
importance.

I was seeking information on this rose also, I have found all the same as the others, it would be a travesty if this rose is no longer available for purchase, or in existence at all, I wonder if it would be available from the owners of the last home the Porters lived in together as a couple.
